We knew this one was coming. Daniel Brunskill was probably a long shot at cracking the 53 after coming in very light for an offensive lineman. He made the transition from tight end to tackle late in his college career, and he just still was not ready for the NFL.
#Falcons waiving OT Daniel Brunskill, per source.— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) September 2, 2017
Wasn't good sign for him when they traded for Sambrailo.
Tough break. Brunskill will hope to latch onto the practice squad. However, based on Twitter instant reactions to his play, that may also be a long shot.
Lets see what the Twitterverse had to say.
The combo of Pasztor and Sambrailo at backup OT is much better than it was a few weeks ago, so there's that. Brunskill/Knappe aren't ready.— Rise Up Reader (@RiseUpReader) September 1, 2017
It’s still not great, but it is definitely better than past years where the team relied on Tom Compton and Bryce Harris.
Going to assume butt booty is not a positive assessment.
Not sure if Brunskill is worth keeping around if he keeps giving up pressure to Deuce Bigalow— Steve (@SteveInBrooklyn) August 20, 2017
I checked and Deuce Bigalow is not actually an NFL player. This is another bad sign.
Another disappointing end, but the Falcons have better answers at offensive line depth than they have had in years.
